Beach clubs in Phuket

Ah, the Land of Smiles. For fashion at a bargain and street food featured on Netflix, exit at Bangkok. Beach bums and partygoers – you’ll know to get off at Phuket instead, where sand, sun, sea, and sexy beats beckon.

For those who eat, sleep, party, repeat, you probably already have your own favourite beach clubs you frequent. For everyone else new to partying on this isle, here are 8 beach clubs in Phuket to bookmark for your next trip.

More beachy things to check out:

1. Catch Beach Club – Free massages on Sundays

You can’t have a list of beach clubs in Phuket and not include the OGCatch Beach Club. It pretty much put day drinking and lying around doing nothing on the map. But it’s grown to be so much more than just tanning by the infinity pool.

There are events on the daily, like residencies featuring world-renowned DJs, and even BBQ buffets on Friday nights at just ฿1,390/pax (~S$54). If the beach club feels too limiting, you can even rent a yacht right from the premises and go island hopping instead.

2. Baba Beach Bar – Kid-friendly with free entry for 1 child under 12

When loud music and alcohol are a must, it’s not surprising that most beach clubs come slapped with an M18 label out front. But there’s no need to put a damper on your vacation if you can’t find a babysitter.

Bring your kiddos along to Baba Beach Bar the next time you just want a lie down in the sun. Youngins under 12 enter for free with every paying adult. 

Admission isn’t the only kid-friendly thing here. The menu of child-portioned finger foods and pastas will appease even the fussiest of tots. And if you’re wary of junior taking a dip in the deep blue, there’s a sprawling pool with a shallower end just for them.

Just because kids are involved doesn’t mean it’ll stop being a rager for adults. The Beverly Hills-inspired beach club has a swim-up bar serving cocktails and beer from ฿280 (~S$10.90) that you can take with you to the poolside daybeds.

If the day barely begins at dusk for you, turn your lounge into a stay by booking a night at the Baba Beach Club Natai just a couple of steps from the pool.

3. Cafe del Mar Phuket – World-renowned brand with cigar menu

Older ones among us might remember the gentle dum zi dum zi that played across Siloso Beach when Cafe del Mar used to be in Singapore. If you’ve missed that, here’s your chance to relive that nostalgia with the club’s franchise in Phuket.

Just like how it was back in SG, the same synth-heavy house music lives on here, and can be heard in all 4 corners of the huge compound. Size shouldn’t matter, but with loungers by the pool, at the beach, bar, and 2nd-floor balcony, this means there’s rarely a shortage of beds and cabanas.

There’s a minimum spend of at least ฿3,000 (~S$116.54) for a sofa or daybed, but you can split this with 4 other friends. It won’t be difficult to hit this figure though. Cafe del Mar is known for its indulgent menu, which includes freshly shucked oysters, sushi, and burgers, and a long list of alcoholic options.

This place also has its own cigar menu to make you feel like you’re actually in Ibiza, with prices starting at ฿800 (~S$31.10) for a Cuban.

5. Coast Beach Club & Bistro – Private dinners from S$85/pax

Think Phuket and Patong Beach with its throngs of beach-goers occupying every empty daybed probably come to mind. If you’d rather party with close friends only, then the quieter Karon Beach and its only beach club would be right up your alley.

You’ll get your usual spread of spun tunes and drinks at this beach club. But it’s the food that guests regularly return to here. Its main feature? Private dinners that will only set you back ฿2,200/pax (~S$85.36).

6. Kudo Beach Club – Free pool entry & lounge zones

By now, you know the drill with beach clubs – seats must be reserved by spending a minimum amount on food and drinks. Here at Kudo Beach Club though, there’s no need to spend a bomb just to chill by the pool.

Located along the ever popular Patong Beach, it’s one of the few beach clubs on this stretch that has free entry always, except on certain party nights. And this includes use of the pool, plus any of the deck or lounge chairs you may find around the pool, on the beach or on the terrace.

Plush seating, like the cabanas and sofas, are the only ones that require a minimum spend of ฿3,000 (~S$116.54) to use. Even then, there are no restrictions on how many people can share one, so feel free to invite the whole gang over to help split the cost.
